David J. Hoftiezer

It is absolutely more fun to work while wearing an Aloha shirt.

David can talk with clients about complex legal, regulatory, and technological issues related to cybersecurity, business, aviation, professional liability, environmental concerns, and internal controls in simple terms they can understand.

He has litigation experience in areas of aviation, professional liability, environmental law, corporate defense, premises liability, dram shop liability and intellectual property.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and University of California Davis School of Law, David began his career as an associate working in Washington, D.C. and Paris, France as a member of Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP’s securities litigation and anti-corruption and internal investigations practice groups. David has been litigating in Hawai‘i since 2013.


David and his wife are bona fide foodies, so they’re always up for trying a new restaurant or revisiting an old favorite.
